Tim Holtz inspired tag

Looking over at Tim's Blog for the Sept. 2012 tag i want to do this i love the look of a metal backgroud on my tags so i came up with this tag. I used metal foil tape and cut pieces in different sizes to layer on my tag. Then i used my stylus to make round inprints along the edges of the tape where it over laped each other. Then i used some alcohol ink in colors gold,cloudy blue and slate all over the tag i also rubbed in some dark grey acrylic pain on the embossed areas to make the stand out more,then i used snow cap pigment by ranger i rubbed it all over the tag to give a white smokey affect and yes pigment ink will stick to metal tag if you heat set it. I also went around the edges with some black pigment ink. Then i added some of Tim's metal embellishment to the tag to make it look like a metal door.
